Form of Artwork:
Aluminium and Vinyl film
Artwork Completion Date:
"竹" (bamboo) and "福" (fortune) in Chinese culture symbolise nobility, righteousness, beauty and happiness. Said together in Cantonese, the two characters mean blessings, and express the hope that the pedestrian travelling along the footbridge could feel blessed.
The artwork is created with Chinese ink wash painting and calligraphy. From one end of the footbridge, viewers can see painted bamboo "竹", and from the other end they can see the term 'fortune' "福" written in Chinese calligraphy.
